It seems that the psychiatrist and his wife found themselves unexpectedly alone at home on a Sunday afternoon. The youngest of their children, the only one living with them, had departed for an event anticipated to keep him away for a few hours. And so, the long married couple decided that love in the afternoon was in the offing.
But, much to their surprise, the teenager returned a good deal earlier than planned — in the middle of everything. Their bedroom had two doors, and they quickly sprang up to lock them both, so that the boy wouldn’t catch them in an embarrassing situation.
Just then, their offspring yelled to see if they were home.
He ran up the stairs and tried the near door of their bedroom, once again calling for them.
He ran around to try the far door of the bedroom, again knocking and turning the door handle, still loudly crying their names.
Finally, he stopped moving, staying in front of the far bedroom door.
This time, he called not for them, but yelled something a bit different.
“What, sex makes you deaf?”
